I Talked To a Republican Today

Actually, there were four people in the room. The Republican, with whom I have occasional conversations about politics, has come to avoid these conversations with me as he never gets the outcome he hopes for. He happens to be white, so was a woman in the room who claims no political alliance. Lastly, there was a black female who seems to be a Democrat but it never came up in conversation.

I confess I goad him into talking politics and today I must have hit his last nerve.

Me: “Your boy Trump wants Hillary DEAD!”

Republican: “What are you talking about?”

Me: “He said if she wins the election and gets to appoint Supreme Court Justices, she’ll take away your guns unless 2nd Amendment people take action”.

Republican:”I hate Hillary”

Me: “Why?”

Republican:”Because she’s a liar!”

Me: “If that’s the standard, how can you support Trump? Have you ever heard a Trump speech? He lies at least every other sentence. Then he lies about the lies!”

Republican: She should be in jail!

Me: Why?

Republican: “She broke the law!”

Me: “What law?”

Republican: “National security.”

Me: “National security is not a law. What law did she break?”

Republican: “She had a separate E-mail account, that’s against the law.”

Me: “No it wasn’t, and Colin Powell and Condi Rice had separate accounts also.”

Republican: “She was hacked!”

Me: “The FBI said there was no evidence of that.”

Republican: “What about Benghazi?”

Me: “What about Benghazi?”

Republican: “She lied and said it was about a video.”

Me: “The one terrorist in custody said the video was a factor in the timing. They were motivated by the video.”

Republican: “I don’t have time to discuss this with you right now, one thing I do know. There are four families that control everything in America and we don’t really have any say in anything anyway.”

Me: (Laughter)

Republican: “And another thing, America’s going to come under a major terrorist attack and it won’t be bombs or anything we’ve seen before. It will be some kind of dirty bomb of an EMP attack.”

Me: (Laughter)

Black woman: “What’s an EMP attack”

Republican: “An Electro Magnetic Pulse wave that will knock out all electronics in the country. They’ll target the three major power grids that run everything and we’ll be back to the stone age. Everyone will have to grow their own food. It will be horrible.”

Me: “Hysterical Laughter”

Black woman: “Have you started growing food for your family yet?”

Republican: “No…”

Black woman: “Don’t you think you better start?”

Republican: (Undecipherable mumbling)

Me: “Where do you get your news?”

Republican: “I make it my business to stay informed.”

Me: “What’s your opinion?” (directed to the white woman)

White Woman: “I don’t like either of the candidates.”

Me: “Why don’t you like Hillary?”

White woman: Well, for one thing, there’s Benghazi…
